Hearts and Minds
Dir. Peter Davis (1974).
Originally to focus primarily on Daniel Ellsberg, Peter Daviss documentary essay ultimately expanded to encompass the Vietnam wars origins in America and its prosecution on the ground. It took an Oscar to get the movie opened in the spring of 1975; five weeks later, Saigon fell to the VC and the wars end merged with its most complete cinematic representation.
